First we had to visit another grand estate. Stourhead was interesting, though, because of its grand gardens that have been used for filming many a movie including the Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley and some dude.
|At one point, we saw some of our group reenacting scenes from what we can only assume was P&P as they were all Jane Austen fans.|
|Mama Swan with her cygnets|
|In the queue for the Stonehenge shuttle|
|The Heel Stone without chain link and highway.|
|Actually, Victorian graffiti|
|I can't find anything on the web to explain this.|
|Pumpkin snake clearly visible right of center.|
|A more likely depiction of how our possible ancestors may have moved the stones.|
|And sample huts based on recent excavations near Woodhenge.|
|Winchester street scene.|
|Fake Roundtable. The first clue is that King Arthur was not a Tudor.|
(Combined red rose of Lancaster and white rose of York in center).
|My wife and Victoria are not amused.|
You're bringing me down
You stood and you watched as
My baby left town
|The actual grave of the actual Jane Austen in Winchester Cathedral|
|The ancient and conical Silbury Hill. Nobody has figured this one out yet.|
|Procession stones at Avebury.|
In 2010, my wife and I went out here at night with a full moon
But when we turned on our torches (flashlights), the cows all started towards us.
My wife, "Turn off the flashlight! Turn it off!" Not a fan of cows.
